Nadezhda Sergeeva, pilot of the two-woman bobsled team representing the Olympic Athletes from Russia, proudly proclaimed her anti-doping stance when she appeared in a YouTube video wearing a sweatshirt with the slogan “I don’t do doping” stamped brightly across the front.
Sergeeva and her partner Anastasia Kocherzhova finished 12th in the two-woman bobsled event earlier this week; Germany, the U.S., and Canada took the gold, silver, and bronze. Sergeeva had previously been tested on Feb. 13, with no adverse findings. This announcement marks the second OAR athlete to fail a doping test, following teammate Alexander Krushelnitsky of the curling team; his bronze medal was stripped from him after he tested positive for meldonium. So far, they are the only two Winter Olympics athletes to test positive for banned drugs during these Games.
